be off. i was on the mccain campaign so i've seen him in primary debates with mccain, in primary debates in 2008 and now in 2012. ki tell you, there's times he's on, like when he was in florida in the last two primary debates. there's times he's been totally off, like the last two debates in south carolina where newt gingrich had him on the ropes. >> but he has to do something to turn around the dime nick this race. >> what's interesting is, yes, you have sort of the official romney/ryan line that mitt romney can't form a complete sentence and bark obama is cicero and it's going to be very hard. but what christie said is what you're hearing from people behind the scenes. there was a piece with a lot of anonymous quotes from romney aides saying, we need a game changer. i think the good news for romney is if you look back to those primary debates that you were talking about, he did the best in the debates where it seemed like he absolutely had to win. so the south carolina debate, seemed like he was on cruise control, sort of playing a prevent defense against newt gingrich. but then once g

in recent presidential elections. just ask john mccain who made his own last-ditch effort. >> there's just one day left until we take america in a new direction. we need to win in pennsylvania tomorrow. with your help we will win. >> reporter: now, it's unclear what kind of resources romney would put into pennsylvania when asked whether the campaign would buy any ads here, romney aide said that is for the romney campaign to know and for the obama campaign to worry about. but getting back to that phone call, wolf, between romney and prime minister netanyahu, mitt romney just briefed reporters on his campaign plane just about half an hour ago about that conversation. he said netanyahu did talk about that red line on where he would try to draw a line on iran's nuclear weapons program. and romney said he offered his own comments on the issue but wouldn't go into any greater detail than that. and also it's also interesting to note, wolf, romney was asked on the plane about any current assessments on how the president and how the white house is handling the diplomatic attacks in libya, the inves

and they showed at that time in the race against john mccain then senator now president obama he got 68% or so of latino voters. he seems to be doing even better right now among latino voters. here's the question, john, for you. are these guaranteed votes that the president can put in the bank right now five weeks to the day before the election? >> reporter: again, in a word, the answer is no, or not quite. because this is such an important constituency, part of our reporting in colorado, wolf, we went to an obama campaign local headquarters last night in the beginning of the suburban stretch and they were making phone calls to latino voters because they know this in the obama campaign, it's not just the percentage, it's how many turnout. and there is deep concern while we were there at the phone bank we spoke to several people in the room that say when they call the latino voters, they are hearing more and more unlike four years ago people saying he's been president four years and where are the jobs? or he's just another politician. or this is the choice of the lesser of two evils, romney and

need to be serious. >> not in a, of course. >> if we took the approach that president romney or frez mccain would have taken to syria, we would be now today engaged with ground troops in syria creating a humanitarian -- >> you're a prettyagr commander in chief for these guys. i don't think either suggested that. >> they call for a humanitarian commander. you occupy syrian territory. >> i don't think that is what that means. >> seizing territory. >> all i can tell you is that mouthing -- >> the american pple- are the american people ready for that kind of approach? the answer is no. >> i can'ta er you quite at muc but't tnk ignoring the death of 30,000 people is the right approach. >> no one is ignoring the death of 30,000 people. the regime is horrific and the president has spoken about that. t te anno e willt ut in my interviews with mitt romney and john mccain, they are not supporting u.s. ground forces going in. i think they have something more along the line like in air strikes or whatever, or a no-fly zone whichs whatheydi libya. >> military has been very clear about the fact if you es

it clear to me he's an internationalist. he's not an isolationist. john mccain, for example, the other day was here in "the situation room" complaining about senator rand paul of kentucky calling him isolationist because he wants to end u.s. government foreign aid. romney made it clear he supports the establishment in going forward with a better more improved foreign aid but supports government foreign aid. what do you make of that? >> well, i think he's stating what has been republican policy for a long time. ronald reagan supported foreign aid, george h.w. bush and george w. bush also understood. i grew up in dubai, i understand. what i do disagree with and what the governor will also disagree with is we do need to probably stop funding countries that clearly aren't working in our interests. >> give me a name or two. >> well, i think if you look at the present course being run egypt or even in pakistan, i think we need to put some restrictions on our dollars being spent there. >> because the u.s. does give more than $1 billion a year to each of these countries, almost $2 billion to pakis
